BUMP! Game Day! Let's roll!
Roads are great so the locals and somewhat local fans need to get off their duffs to head over to the game.

Wish that they'd quit that.

80% of the WMU apparel around town is Black,
10% Brown, 5% white & 5% some other color like pink.

Goes back to marketing. I walked into the Spirit Shop just last weekend. okgc is dead on....80% of the shirts and coats are black. It's easier to market and people choose to wear that color more regularly.
it's literally just the way style is right now. People would rather wear black than brown. Brown is slowly starting to come back, and i've seen more of the stuff WMU Hands out (other than lunatics/zoo) starting to move back towards brown/gold. Time will tell what we see
I remember when Blackout Saturday was a big thing. Back-to-back basketball games and a hockey game. Fun times.

Oh I know, it's a personal preference, we would rather look like Raiderettes than Broncos real school colors. I'm jealous of Wyoming for embracing their tradition so well.
I'm probably one of the few that is rather ambivalent about the brown v black issue. To some it is a real emotional issue. To others, not so much. If you look around the college athletics landscape, those teams swimming in donor ca$h and great shoe/apparel contracts (freebies, etc.) are showing up several times a year now in some new, outlandish uniform for a big game. It has gotten ridiculous.

Here's my deal. Our official school colors kind of suck. I don't mind the brown, but really it would be on the bottom of my list for a dominant color. And nobody needs to teach me the story of where our colors came from. I'm well aware of it and it is as lame a story for school colors as any school could come up with. It's difficult to use that shade of yellow in a uniform and have it look good. Opinions vary, of course.

Let's be real. Kids love to sport unis they really like. Lots of new innovations in styling lately and it is popular with them.

I'd prefer we use the dark brown and the gold gold. But this is similar with the "re-branding" and the logo. They unveil the Bronco overlaid on the W. I think that is good. So, stick to it and be consistent over all and don't change the logo.

A bigger point to me is that the school's leadership has allowed all the division. Had they any sense, they would have never let things stray from our so-called tradition.

edit: another thought. PJ is likely to change the look. Maybe talk to our uniform company and ask them to come with 2 competing sets; one with our traditional colors, and one with the dark brown and gold scheme. Ask them to be creative. Then, choose a look and stick with it.

Typical start to a KSU WMU game. 03-banghead
Is Kent shooting 100% from the field? For sure shooting 100% from three.
Settling for too many long threes. Need to get the ball to the rim. Also leaving their shooters way too much space.

They're 100 percent on shots not blocked by Shayne, 80 percent overall.
We are shooting awful/
Maybe DB can hit a few more of those until the rest start finding the basket.
Bad free throw shooting by Kent thus far is keeping this close.
Unless he is going to get fouled and we can count on MAC officials calling it, I wouldn't recommend DB driving. Lately, going into traffic has been pretty disastrous.

Nice, Hutch.

We're not helping ourselves there, either.
Switching on defense, terrible. Shot selection terrible. Patience on offense, terrible. Dont appear to be in sync at all.

I was just going to say something similar, but that just about sums it up right there.
